Fluminense refute rumours of moves for Ronaldinho and Wellington Nem
Fluminense director Paulo Angioni has rejected claims that his club are to make moves for either free agent Ronaldinho or Shakhtar Donetsk attacker Wellington Nem after it emerged that the pair were available.
The latter is one of a number of Brazilian players that are thought to be keen on leaving Ukranian outfit Shakhtar in light of the recent troubles there, whilst Ronaldinho has just left Atletico Mineiro after two years there.
But Angioni told newspaper Extra: "The story of Ronaldinho at Fluminense has nothing in it."
"The negotiation with Wellington is a bit complicated. Fluminense made a proposal, there is an understanding with the player, but it is not an easy thing with Shakhtar Donetsk."
Wellington, 22, previously played at the Rio de Janeiro club until his transfer to Ukraine for a fee of around €8 million last year. During his time in Brazil, he won the Campeonato Brasileirao in 2012 as well as the Carioca state championship in the same year.
